Your First Mortgage
Are you thinking about purchasing your first home? Or perhaps you would like to refinance? If so, don’t even begin the process until you read what we have to say. . .
If you thought that buying your own home is out of your reach, think again. Every year thousands of people just like you are becoming home owners and you can too.
There are many programs available to people at all income levels. Much of that money is never used because people just don’t know it is available.
At the same time many existing homeowners are considering refinancing their home mortgage. They do so for any number of reasons. Some are seeking a lower interest rate while others would like to remodel their home rather than buy new.
Unfortunately the only guidelines are those seen on television commercials. They are the only ones who appear to want to just hand you money. That is also generally the worse case scenario.
